Road Accidents Involving Towed Chippers.

This was posted by on June 9th, 2020

Hi,
There seems to have been a spike in the amount of road traffic accidents involving towed chippers. Last week, we had 4 incidents involving towed chippers and we wouldn’t normally get that number of claims (for that type of incident) in a few months. Only one of those was a non fault accident with another vehicle driving in to them, the others were simply the insured person losing control of the vehicle. I can only assume that the reduced traffic with many still being lock-down is resulting in vehicles perhaps going faster than normal and not as much care being taken. Obviously the damage to the chipper is quite considerable when in a road accident and when the vehicle rolls as well as the chipper then it is also a danger to personal safety. Take care on the roads people.
